system here in washington. and i think that's infected the view of health care bill whose come poebent parts the american people strongly support. so i -- i agree with what senator webb was saying there. >> would you take it component by component? that's what delahunt is saying. portability, second bill. break this thing down and it is too hard to explain as one massive bill. >> well, look, i think, first of all, there are going to be lots of conversations about how to proceed and all of these views will be taken into account. i'm sure that the decisions will be made. the viability of some of these parts absent of others i think would become a question but the -- bugger point here is that we have a lot of things to do. and they all have to be aimed at one thing which is to bring more economic security and to middle class families, middle class workers in this country. that's what people were saying yesterday. that's they said when they elected barack obama. they wanted us to come here and make the system work for them and not the special interests, to bring more economic secur

at washington, the message this white house received out of massachusetts was that look, even in blue massachusetts, there's anger at how washington works. and if you look at our poll, what seems to be one way to interpret the poll is this. the public's not yet blaming barack obama for being part of the washington mess. however, they could start blaming him if he doesn't do what they believe they elected him to do which is to come here and change how this place works. they don't -- they are not confident yet that he's the right set of goals and policies. they have issues with him on the policy front. it doesn't seem he's doing enough. that sort of message. that's one of the things that this white house agrees with the public. they know that perceptionwise, doesn't like like they focus on the issue americans care about, jobs. doesn't look like there has been enough of change. it looks like they played within the system when the public thinks the system is broken. >> kelly o'don't the same message clearly that democrats and republicans are hearing on capitol hill. >> if i could sha

mitchell, live in washington. scrambling ahead of today's state of the union. let's get to savannah guthrie, co-host of "the daily rundown," joe klein, and white house reporter chris alyssa and author of the blog the fix. savannah, this whole reset today with middle class tax cuts, i guess we're no longer worried about america's concerns over the deficit. what are they putting out there today? >> reporter: these are pretty modest tax cuts, but it is designed to go for the middle class, which, of course, is the target of the state of the union address on wednesday and we heard some of the themes that i think we will hear, which is those fighting words, the president saying they'll fight for the middle class. in terms of what was announced they'll almost double the child credit tax for families making less than $85,000 a year. breaks for students, limiting the federal loan payments to 10% of a student's income. it's supposed to be geared to giving the middle class a break and, again, i think what we heard from the president certainly today and on friday as well is a real preview to what we'll

mitchell live in washington. the white house has leaked some proposals from tomorrow's big speech. let's go to chuck todd, co-host of "the daily rundown" on msnbc and cnbc's steve liesman and ron brownstein, political director for atlantic media. first, chuck, how does this track with the mood of the congress right now, what the president is proposing? >> reporter: he is propositiving a spending freeze on nondiscretionary spending filled with washington jargon. you're talking about all the agencies not involved with national security or foreign policy, state department defense department, department of homeland security veterans' affairs. put those aside. from the education department, labor, agriculture things like this. so this spending freeze accounts for about half a trillion dollars each year, a little less than $500 billion. they want to cap it at that this piece of the budget pie. they say that they will play around. so some agencies may see an increase. this doesn't mean that everybody is going to see cut or no spending increase at all but that they will play around with it. tran

-election. joining us now, chris alyssa from "the washington post." the fix blog who of course first broke the story late last night and early this morning. and our own white house correspondent savannah guthrie. thanks for being with us both. chris, first of all, what's your information on what role the white house played? we know the president went in october and campaigned and helped raise money for chris dodd. the vice president was this several times. they saw the poll numbers. rahm emanuel knows this game better than anyone. was there a strong suggestion to chris dodd that for the good of the party, he should decide to step down. >> andrea, you are right about everything you have just said. the white house is filled with political operatives that saw the writing on the wall here and privately acknowledged that they would be better off with someone like a richard bloomenthal rather than chris dodd. i haven't had anyone tell mo the white house actively went to chris dodd and said if they tried to deal with new york governor david paterson and said you need to get out of this race
